  • Description

    The annual general meeting of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund has ended in Yugoslavia with plans for more assistance to developing countries in financial trouble. World Bank President Robert McNamara said the assistance, in the form of increased loans, would be made to countries who were willing to make changes in their economies to solve their own financial problems. He was supported by Monetary Fund Managing Director, Jaques De Larosiere who warned there'd be no increase in living standards until inflation was beaten. New Zealand Prime Minister Robert Muldoon called for more co-operation between countries. As the closing session began Mr. McNamara said the severe problems of the third world called for new policies and additional resources for the International Development Agency.
